I just found that picture on eBay, for an IBM S/34 front panel :

I have no idea what a S/34 is, BTW. Maybe a 16-bits machine ? Oh, I should have looked it up first... at http://www.corestore.org/34.htm

However I see that they use hexadecimal rotary buttons, just like the assembler board of #YGREC and that's pretty interesting ! However, is there no disassembly board ?

On ebay?  Did you buy it?

No, what would I do with it ?

Control your S/34, of course!

A nice panel like that makes me want to put something behind it.  Even a microcontroller running an emulator.

I have already enough to do with my #YGREC8 and the likes ;-)
